Scholarships & Bursaries


Bursaries

The 2014-15 bursary forms are now available from the school office or you can downloaded here. The Board of Governors has in the past allocated approximately 100 bursaries for students of families requiring financial assistance. The bursaries range from $1,000 to 6.000 per student.

The deadline for these applications is January 31, 2014. They should be returned to the senior school office, marked for the attention of Mary Hazlewood. All bursary applicants will be notified of the Financial Aid Committees decision by letter by April 30, 2014.


Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mary Hazlewood on mhazlewood@warwickacad.bm or by phone 239-9455.

Walter Sharpe Family Awards

The Awards will be available to two students entering Year 7. Families must complete the bursary application if they wish to be considered for the Walter Sharpe Family Awards.

The award is $9,000 per year for 3 years. The recipients of this award will be selected from our external applicants.

The intention of the Walter Sharpe Family Awards is to provide assistance to families who could not otherwise afford to send their child to Warwick Academy. Applicants will need to have been born in Bermuda and recipients will be chosen based on their entrance scores, an interview and other criteria. Recipients will be required to re-qualify each year to demonstrate that they continue to meet the high academic performance standards and the other criteria upon which the awards were based.

Govenors' Scholarships

There shall be two full Governors' Scholarships worth the full annual tuition for a particular year, available annually, for five years, to be awarded to eligible, external Year 6 students entering Warwick Academy in Year 7. Families must complete the bursary application if they wish to be considered for the Governors’ Scholarships.

The general policy in awarding the two external Governors' Scholarships shall be "to assist children in the public school system who wish to attend Warwick Academy to be able to do so". Consequently, the successful candidates for the Governors' Scholarships will be chosen based on the scores they achieve in the entrance exam although that will not be the sole criteria; the scholarships will be awarded from amongst the highest scoring candidates who demonstrate the greatest financial need. The successful candidates must also have been studying in the public school system in Bermuda for at least 3 academic years.

All students awarded Governors’ Scholarships must maintain good academic and behavioural standards in order to have their scholarships renewed. In particular, a student must obtain 80% effort grades of 1 or 2 and must achieve a B average, except in exceptional circumstances in the discretion of the Committee.

Academic Achievement Awards

All internal Year 6 Warwick Academy students shall also be required to sit the same entrance examination as external Year 6 students. The two top scoring internal students will be given an academic achievement award for which they will be given due recognition.

University Scholarships

Warwick Academy offers the following three university scholarships to qualified and deserving students: the William Purvis, the Stanley and May Ashworth Jones and the W. C. Waddington. To be considered for one of these scholarships, applicants must have:

• completed their secondary education at Warwick Academy
• and have been enrolled at the school for a least three years;
• six passes in the I/GCSE, with at least three being at "A" standard;
